Welcome to the Wildcat Family! We are excited to welcome you and your student to our Wildcat community. As a new Wildcat, your student will complete many important steps before classes begin, and we are here to assist you along the way.
New Student Orientation is required for all incoming first-year students. Due to Covid-19, orientation will be a multi-step, self-paced online process that sets your student up for success. Although, the Family Orientation is not mandatory, it will provide an opportunity to learn more about the campus, community and provide an opportunity to meet other Wildcat Families.
We encourage students to take the lead in completing these steps. As a family member, you can reference the Family Orientation where you will find information on topics like how to pay for tuition, meal plan options, housing, financial aid, safety, and more. We encourage you to learn about these steps so you can continue to serve as a resource for your student. You will receive an email regarding the Family Orientation via the email address your student provided us with when they signed you up as a guest.
Finally, we encourage you to become a member of the Arizona Parents & Family Association. As a member you will receive a monthly newsletter and regular communication about the University of Arizona, invitation to events and emergency communication. If you still have questions, we encourage you to reach out to our staff in Parent & Family Programs.
